Three familial varieties of periodic paralysis have been described: 1. hypokalemia, 2. hyperkalemic and 3. normokalemic (1,2). In some eases this classification is not applicable, since there is not always a relationship between the onset or degree of paralysis and the level of serum potassium (1, 3). The fundamental defect causing the periodic attacks of paralysis and the permanent weakness which is sometimes associated is not known. Among the factors advanced as explanations are alteration of… Expand
Myopathy of hypokalemic periodic paralysis. An electron microscopic study.
TLDR
The main clinical features of the disease were elucidated and it was established that the serum potassium was elevated during the paralytic attack and that permanent myopathic weakness involving the abdominal and proximal limb girdle muscles may occur. Expand
Thyrotoxic hypokalemic periodic paralysis. Muscle morphology and functional assay of sarcoplasmic reticulum.
TLDR
A patient with thyrotoxic periodic paralysis who had myopathic changes compatible with Thyrotoxicosis in addition to the changes characteristic of periodic paralysis was observed, and a combination of structural defects was described. Expand
Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis. Metabolic and ultrastructural studies.
TLDR
The paralytic episodes in TPP generally parallel the hyperthyroidal state, and can be greatly alleviated or cured by appropriate thyroid treatment, while attacks of FPP are associated with a falling metabolic rate. Expand
Paralisia periódica: estudo anátomo-patológico do músculo esquelético de 14 pacientes
TLDR
Important myopathic findings in the muscle biopsy suggest a permanent myopathy which probably develops after severe crises or long term disease. Expand
Studies on a patient with hypokalemic familial periodic paralysis.
TLDR
Electron microscopic and light microscopic observations on the muscle in both control periods and during paralysis show that the vacuoles contained in the muscle are a permanent lesion and do not appear to be more significant in number or extent during paralysis. Expand
Clinical and ultrastructural observations in a kindred with normo-hyperkalaemic periodic paralysis.
Electron microscopic studies of muscle biopsies from clinically unaffected sibs in a family with normo-hyperkalaemic periodic paralysis with variable myotonia have revealed dilatation of theExpand
Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis.
TLDR
Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis occurs primarily in Orientals with an overwhelming male preponderance and a higher association of specific HLA antigens, with clinical manifestations including onset after high carbohydrate ingestion or heavy exertion. Expand
Muscle pathology correlates with permanent weakness in hypokalemic periodic paralysis: a case report
TLDR
A morphological follow-up in a case of familial hypokalemic periodic paralysis with progressive weakness is presented, describing correlation of muscle pathology with permanent weakness in hypokaleptic periodic paralysis. Expand
Tubular aggregates. Their association with neuromuscular diseases, including the syndrome of myalgias/cramps.
TLDR
Although tubular aggregates constituted the predominant abnormality on muscle biopsy specimens in these cases, other mild, nonspecific changes were noted. Expand
Regressive vacuolar myopathy in steatorrhea. Electrophysiological and histological study.
TLDR
The metabolic study suggests that vacuolation and electromyographic changes were related to increased sodium content of muscle fibers in steatorrhea and in other dyskalemic states. Expand
